Part of Swiha Charity Foundation’s programs is to improve access to clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene; Luweero district is one of the parts of Uganda that were greatly affected by the in 1986, its residents have since been challenged with access to essential communal services like clean water among others.
Our efforts focused to establish a reliable water source in Katsuule Village in Luweero district. During the commissioning of the borehole, the local community leadership were in attendance.
This was an intervention after our prior visit to the only water well in the area which had been their source of water since; its water was being used for home-use, cattle grazing and farming despite of the poor sanitation habits that had put the community at a high risk and exposure to diseases linked to poor sanitation like cholera, dysentery, typhoid, intestinal worm infections and polio among others.
Since the borehole was established adjucent to a mosque, we believe this is to solve challenges of access to water used by the Muslim believers for ablution before prayers.
We thank friends and individual supporters who responded to our call with financial support that enabled us accomplish this magnificent borehole that is to tranform lives and families for generations to come. Thank you for being part of a good cause.
